    For the Democrats, a presidential candidate has to represent the worst of America, embody the furthest thing from traditional American values and possess a parasitic and exploitative nature. Their self-serving irresponsibility and extreme dishonesty, as well as an extreme hatred for our constitutional republic as it was originally constructed cannot be in doubt. In order to be chosen to represent that Marxist, end America as we know it organization, one must be, to put it simply and succinctly, a low-life scum bag. Nobody represents those ‚Äúideals‚ÄĚ more wholly than Hillary Clinton. As the criminal Clintons are insulated from the an...

    Since Bill and Hillary Clinton left the White House in 2001, they have earned more than $230 million. But in federal filings the Clintons claim they are worth somewhere between $11 million and $53 million. After layering years of disclosures on top of annual tax returns, Forbes estimates their combined net worth at $45 million. Where did all of the money go? No one seems to know, and the Clintons arenít offering any answers. From 2001 to 2014 the power couple spent $95 million on taxes. Hillaryís 2008 presidential run cost her $13 million. Their two homes cost a combined...

    A reported two-month gap in emails from Hillary Clinton's private account during 2012 coincides with a period of escalating violence in Libya and the obtaining of a special exemption by her top aide, Huma Abedin, to work for both the State Department and the Clinton Foundation. The Daily Beast reported late Tuesday that no emails between Clinton and her State Department staff for the months of May and June 2012 are among the estimated 2,000 messages that have been released from the Democratic presidential frontrunner's account. A State Department spokesman told The Daily Beast that only emails related to the...

    Such is the self-absorbed arrogance of the Clintons that Hillary actually thought she could get away with the criminal activity of conducting her government business on a personal server and keeping and transmitting classified data in violation of federal law. It was a server as vulnerable to foreign hacking as any in the private sector that has been hacked, or the servers at the foreign-hacked Office of Personnel Management. She put her country at risk, and now her personal political ambitions as well. Only the disinterested Justice Department of the administration she served and a sycophantic press will save her...

    A federal judge scolded State Department attorneys during a tense hearing last week, ordering officials to produce Hillary Clinton-related records that The Associated Press has been requesting for years. U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon said he wants to ďfind out whatís been going onĒ at the State Department,Ē or rather, ďwhatís not been going on over thereĒ that the APís records requests have been ignored for four years, Politico reported. The news publication is reportedly seeking records about former Secretary of State Hillary Clintonís schedules and her former top staffers.

    House Select Committee on Benghazi Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., charged on Friday that the State Department gave his committee thousands of pages of press clippings in response to a subpoena that was issued in March. For some reason, Gowdy said, some of those press clippings included articles about actor Richard Gere. "You know what we got last week? We got 3,600 pages, half of which were press clippings, including articles about Richard Gere," he said on CNN. "So if that is their idea of complying with a congressional investigation, then we are going to be at this for a long...

    In America, ďaccuracy, honesty, transparency, impartiality, and accountability,Ē went out the day Obama came in The country infamous for its running dog-mainstream media cheering anything Obama in a cacophony of barks, including the ďfundamental transformationĒ of their own country, is now branching out through its State Department to the world. Bureaucrats of the U.S. State Department, who have already taken it upon themselves to teach ďethicsĒ to the ďup and coming journalistsĒ of India, are going to ďembedĒ up-and-coming Russian journalists in American newsrooms. Having gained control of the mainstream media on home turf, why not try for world media...

    Just months before the most important U.N. climate conference in years, Republican appropriators in the House of Representatives are taking aim at one of the Obama administrationís most cherished prioritiesóinternational climate change funding. An appropriations bill for the State Department and foreign operations, released Tuesday, excludes funding for three major climate initiativesóthe Green Climate Fund, the Clean Technology Fund, and the Strategic Climate Fundóand also removes funding for the U.N.-backed Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Also in the firing line is funding for the U.N. Population Fund (UNFPA), the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and debt relief. Ö
