    As Hillary Clinton seeks to rebound from a highly critical report from the State Department’s inspector general, Senate investigators and a conservative group are zeroing in on newly revealed evidence about the activities of a now retired State Department computer specialist in orchestrating what they charge was a “cover-up” of the former secretary of state’s email practices. The role of John Bentel, whose identity as a key figure in the email probes was first reported by Yahoo News on Wednesday, is expected to be one focus of questioning today when Clinton’s former chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, is deposed in...

    Constitution Rising ^ | November 6, 2015 | Rick Wells
    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 “ideals” more wholly than Hillary Clinton. As the criminal Clintons are insulated from the an...

    Is there any sin that Hillary didn’t dip her cankle into? The Washington Examiner has uncovered what looks like the State Department under Hillary Clinton helping hide reports of pedophilia and sexual abuse among their staff right before she resigned in order to shelter her from criticism. State Department Inspector General officials edited out passages of a high-profile report in 2013 that could have embarrassed Hillary Clinton just days before she quit President Obama’s Cabinet.The officials excised details of a cover up of misconduct by Clinton’s security team.The edits raise concerns that investigators were subjected to “undue influence” from agency...

    The House Foreign Affairs Committee has issued a subpoena to the Obama administration compelling it to release long-withheld documents concerning the training of diplomatic security personnel tasked with defending Americans abroad. Since 2014, Rep. Ed Royce (R., Calif.) the committee’s chairman, has been seeking key documents from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) regarding State Department plans to construct a nearly $1 billion training facility for diplomatic security personnel. Royce issued a subpoena to the OMB on Friday to force the release of documents detailing whether construction of the new training facility will be cost effective. Critics such as...

    INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS TIMES ^ | April 08 2015 | Matthew Cunningham-Cook
    For union organizers in Colombia, the dangers of their trade were intensifying. When workers at the country’s largest independent oil company staged a strike in 2011, the Colombian military rounded them up at gunpoint and threatened violence if they failed to disband, according to human rights organizations. Similar intimidation tactics against the workers, say labor leaders, amounted to an everyday feature of life. For the United States, these were precisely the sorts of discomfiting accounts that were supposed to be prevented in Colombia under a labor agreement that accompanied a recently signed free trade pact liberalizing the exchange of goods...

    Great 2 minute Video: WH trying to bring more Central American immigrants to US? Images of unaccompanied children flooding across the U.S.-Mexico border defined the immigration crisis last summer. Now, the federal government is intervening so these children won’t have to make that trek -– they’ll get to fly into the U.S. instead. For free. A new State Department and Department of Homeland Security program seeks to stop the surge of immigrant children from Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador at the southern border by giving their U.S.-based parents the option to apply to have their kids picked up and put...

    A new State Department and Department of Homeland Security Program will fly immigrant children from Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador to their parents in the U.S. for free. Parents can apply to have their children picked up and flown over the border to them on the taxpayer’s dime, as long as they have some kind of legal immigration status, The Daily Caller reported Wednesday. The program was created in response to a surge of unaccompanied Central American children making the perilous trek to illegally cross the U.S. border that began last summer.

    Hillary Clinton's chief of staff at the State Department was listed as a director at the Clinton Foundation in its corporate records for more than three years after joining the administration, highlighting concerns that Clinton's aides were too close to the foundation during her tenure. The "William J. Clinton Foundation Corporation" named Cheryl Mills as one its three directors when it applied for nonprofit corporate status in Florida in June 2009-five months after Mills began serving as Clinton's chief of staff and counsel at the State Department. The organization continued to list Mills as a director in its annual state...

    A State Department watchdog has begun an inquiry into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email setup, following calls from Republicans about the private email address and server used exclusively by the former secretary during her tenure at Foggy Bottom, The Hill has confirmed. The State Department’s inspector general received a letter from the Republican National Committee only a few days after a New York Times report detailed Clinton’s exclusive use of a private server at her home. John Phillippe, the RNC’s general counsel, urged the watchdog “to conduct an investigation into whether Secretary Clinton violated Department of State policies...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | Monday, March 30, 2015 | Byron York
    Now that the public knows Hillary Clinton destroyed all the emails on her secret server — her lawyer told the House Benghazi Select Committee that there's nothing left to search — a question remains: Did Clinton destroy documents that were under subpoena from Congress? The answer is more complex than it might seem. There's no doubt Clinton withheld information that Congress demanded she turn over, and some Republicans believe the documents she destroyed were covered under a subpoena as well. But a look at the story behind the subpoena and other document requests from congressional Benghazi investigators is a tale...

    One of the reporters who exposed what appears to have been former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s clandestine and rogue intelligence service said that there are more questions than answers regarding the operation, which was exposed in the hacked emails of Clinton’s longtime confidante Sidney Blumenthal. Appearing on Breitbart News Sunday on Sirius XM Patriot channel 125, Jeff Gerth, a two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, told host and Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon that he still wanted to know “who authorized or tasked this network to do what they did” and “who was paying for this?” Gerth, the former...

    ...Hillary’s private email server acted as portal to a private intelligence network that included retired members of special operations, former CIA clandestine personnel and foreign informers. Acting in some indeterminate capacity over it was Sidney Blumenthal, former aide to president Bill Clinton and now apparently a retainer to the family dynasty. It was the compromise of Blumenthal’s emails by the Romanian hacker Guccifer that in part led to journalists to discover Hillary’s private email account. Publicly available sources describe Guccifer as a taxi driver who penetrated the email accounts of the Bush family, Colin Powell and of course Sidney Blumenthal...

    If the motives to wipe the hard drive on Hillary Clinton’s e-mail server weren’t already crystal clear, a new development last night put it in Ultra HD. Gawker’s Jeff Girth and Sam Biddle uncovered a secret, private intelligence network run by Sidney Blumenthal for Hillary’s benefit, apart from the State Department’s own Bureau of Intelligence and Research. Hackers got e-mails that went through Hillary’s private server between her and Blumenthal, e-mails that show her own private intel group was also warning her that Libya was collapsing in the weeks and months prior to the sacking of the consulate in...

    Updated March 27 to include responses from the FBI and the State Department. Emails disclosed by a hacker show a close family friend was funneling intelligence about the crisis in Libya directly to the Secretary of State’s private account starting before the Benghazi attack. Starting weeks before Islamic militants attacked the U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya, longtime Clinton family confidante Sidney Blumenthal supplied intelligence to then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gathered by a secret network that included a former CIA clandestine service officer, according to hacked emails from Blumenthal’s account. The emails, which were posted on the internet...

    The Obama administration’s fraud, misconduct and misrepresentation on the Hillary Clinton email scandal continues in federal court. Crafty, corrupt politicians realize that transparency and accountability go hand-in-hand. So that is why Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama (with the federal bureaucracies at their beck and call) have a personal and political interest in keeping their records away from the American people – even if it means violating the federal transparency law: the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
