    MR KIRBY: Good afternoon, everybody. Got a special guest with me here today to kick off the briefing – Mr. Simon Henshaw, the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Population, Refugees, and Migration, is going to walk you through for a few minutes some more details about the screening process for refugees. We’ve talked about this over the last few days, about how extensive and thorough it is, and I asked Mr. Henshaw to come give you a little primer on that. He’ll also be able to stick around for a couple of questions and then we’ll get on...
  • ISIS Genocide Victims Do Not Include Christians, the State Department Is Poised to Rule

    National Review ^ | November 13, 2015 | Nina Shea
    A report by a renowned journalist states that Christians are to be excluded from an impending official United States government declaration of ISIS genocide. If true, it would reflect a familiar pattern within the administration of a politically correct bias that views Christians - even non-Western congregations such as those in Iraq and Syria - never as victims but always as Inquisition-style oppressors. (That a State Department genocide designation for ISIS may be imminent was acknowledged last week in congressional testimony, by Ambassador Anne Patterson, the assistant secretary of the State Department’s Near East Bureau.)

    No one doubted that an incoming Secretary of State would have had to sign the typical non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) that also inform high-ranking officials of the criminal consequences of failing to adhere to the rules and regulations governing the handling of classified material. However, no one could actually verify that Hillary Clinton signed off on those warnings, which would make her “I didn’t know any better” defense even more threadbare than ever. Now the signed NDA has been located, thanks to a FOIA request from the Competitive Enterprise Institute, as Lachlan Markey reports for the Free Beacon: As the...

    Our country just went through a spectacle indicative of our government's operational dysfunction. Politics comes before the safety of our State Department personnel and the truth. There are a lot of takeaways from this event that have a lasting effect. Overview: This committee exists and these hearings were being held because 1) Our State Department personnel were left under-protected in the neighboring country to one where our embassy had just been assaulted and four of our fellow countrymen died. No one truly took responsibility or suffered any consequences for this massive failure. 2) This administration stonewalled on providing documents to...

    Many people may share Senator Bernie Sanders' complaint that he was tired of hearing about Hillary Clinton's e-mails. But the controversy is about issues far bigger than e-mails. One issue is the utter disaster created by the Obama administration's foreign policy in Libya, carried out by Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. An even bigger issue is whether high officials of government can ignore the law and refuse to produce evidence when it is subpoenaed. If they can, then the whole separation of powers the checks and balances in the Constitution gives way to arbitrary government by corrupt...

Gowdys aides blamed the State Department for the disclosure, and the agency acknowledged Monday a human error led to a failure to delete a name from the email in question.

Her public responses to questions about her unusual email arrangement have dogged her presidential campaign, as new revelations have forced her to alter earlier...

    As if the President Obamas sweeping amnesty measures havent compromised national security enough, the administration let 1,519 inadmissible foreigners embroiled in terrorism into the U.S. last year because the crimes were committed while under duress. Before the Obama administration tweaked a federal law last year, these foreign nationals would have been banned from the country for supporting terrorist causes. But under the changes the Secretary of Homeland Security has discretionary authority to waive certain grounds of inadmissibility relating to terrorism. Weve seen this discretionary authority abused in the last few years and in fact, the administration has eliminated a zero...

Hes the first judge to rule on the request, which the department filed last week as it tries to get a single judge to oversee the more than 30 open-records cases seeking Clinton emails. Judge Leons rejection probably puts the nail in that idea, since it would take universal buy-in from the more...

    Hillary Clinton paid to hide the identity of the people running her private email server, Breitbart News has learned. Her attempt to hide details about her server has allowed another faceless company access to her classified email information, while doing little to nothing to secure that information from hackers. Clintons private email domain was initially purchased by Clinton aide Eric Hoteham, who listed the Clintons Chappaqua, New York home as the contact address for his purchase. But the domain is actually registered to an Internet company designed to hide the true identity of the people running it. is...

    In one of the newly release Hillary Clinton emails, a mostly redacted message from Philip Gordon to Huma Abedin and Jacob Sullivan ends with, "To quote Huma, I don't get paid enough." Abedin, Clintons closest aide, was able to change her fortunes with a little help from friends. In 2012, Abedin transitioned to being a "special employee," meaning she could hold several jobs in addition to her role at the State Department. Presumably, that meant she got a raise. As the Washington Post notes, At the time, Abedin held four jobs with four different employers an arrangement allowed by...

    David Brock is a longtime Clinton ally, self-described liar and the paranoid founder of Media Matters. Some background on him:David Brock was smoking a cigarette on the roof of his Washington, D.C. office one day in the late fall of 2010 when his assistant and two bodyguards suddenly appeared and whisked him and his colleague Eric Burns down the stairs. Brock, the head of the liberal nonprofit Media Matters for America, had told friends and co-workers that he feared he was in imminent danger from right-wing assassins and needed a security team to keep him safe. The threat he faced...

    Just another time-honored trick from the Clinton playbook Now that her presidential campaign is taking on water, a disingenuous former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said this week that she was accepting responsibility for illegally using an insecure private Internet server to transmit emails containing top-secret classified U.S. government documents. Whatever that means in Clinton-speak. Hillary claimed previously that she was taking responsibility for the Benghazi fiasco in 2012 that left four Americans dead. Nothing happened to her. We still dont even have an official cause of death for Ambassador Chris Stevens who was initially reported to have been ritualistically...

    Hillary Clinton’s long time confidant, Huma Abedin, is sick and tired of you nasty Republicans dragging her good name through the mud and she’s not going to take it anymore. In response to the mean spirited nature of a Senate Committee asking the State Department to produce certain documents related to her time working for the agency, Abedin’s lawyer has sent a letter to Chuck Grassley telling him he needs to knock off his offensive behavior. (New York Times) A lawyer for Huma Abedin, a top adviser to Hillary Rodham Clinton, has accused Charles E. Grassley, chairman of the...

    WASHINGTON (AP) The transmission of now-classified information across Hillary Rodham Clinton's private email is consistent with a State Department culture in which diplomats routinely sent secret material on unsecured email during the past two administrations, according to documents reviewed by The Associated Press.

    We already got a hint of this last week, when Fox News identified some of the subject matter in now-redacted e-mails from Hillary Clinton’s secret server — the part of the cache she shared, anyway. Two of the e-mails that got retroactively classified dealt with security issues in Benghazi and military intelligence on Libyan troop movements. The classification codes on those redactions from State suggest that, despite Hillary’s disclaimers, those materials were classified at the time those e-mails were sent.The Washington Examiner’s Sarah Westwood took a deeper look at the redactions from State, and discovered that these were no...

    A high profile marriage of an Iranian American doctor to actress Gina Davis was already reported (Link). But news now reveals that John Kerry's son-in-law is also an Iranian-American doctor. The news comes out shortly after Kerry faced staunch opposition from right wing pro-Israeli Republicans to his nomination as Secretary of State. In 2009 Dr. Vanessa Bradford Kerry, John Kerrys younger daughter by his first wife, married Dr. Brian (Behrooz) Vala Nahed, an Iranian-American physician.

    A federal judge indicated Thursday that he believes Hillary Clinton violated government policy by storing official emails on a private server when she worked as secretary of state. During a hearing on a Freedom of Information Act case, U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan said the actions had complicated the State Departments ability to respond to requests for the agencys records on various topics. We wouldnt be here today if this employee had followed government policy, Sullivan said, apparently referring to Clinton. After Justice Department lawyer Peter Wechsler argued that FOIA normally doesnt allow for searches of government officials private accounts,...
