    The Clinton Foundation has confirmed it accepted a $1 million gift from Qatar while Hillary Clinton was U.S. secretary of state without informing the State Department, even though she had promised to let the agency review new donations from foreign governments. Qatari officials pledged the money in 2011 to mark the 65th birthday of Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton's husband, and sought to meet the former U.S. president in person the following year to present him the check, according to an email from a foundation official to Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign chairman, John Podesta. The email, among thousands hacked from Podesta's...

    The Justice Department moved Tuesday to fight a federal judgeís order that its lawyers undergo mandatory ethics training, digging in after the DOJ was accused of misleading the courts over President Obama's immigration executive actions. In filings Tuesday, the department said the order would "far exceed the bounds of appropriate remedies" and would cost the department millions. U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen, of Texas, had issued the order earlier this month, after alleging DOJ attorneys misled him about the implementation of Obamaís executive orders on illegal immigrants.

    Governor Terry Branstad is crediting Ted Cruz for running an "old-fashioned", 99-county campaign that yielded victory in Monday night's Iowa Caucuses, but Branstad is joining the chorus criticizing Cruz for "questionable" campaign tactics. "This thing that they distributed on Caucus night saying that Dr. Carson was likely to drop out and his supporters should support Cruz, that is, I think, unethical and unfair," Branstad said this morning. "I think there'll be repercussions to that." Cruz has apologized to Carson, the retired neurosurgeon who finished fourth in the Caucuses on Monday night. Iowa Congressman Steve King, a Cruz backer, helped spread...

    Huma Abedin, Hillary Clintonís most trusted confidante, is increasingly becoming a central figure in the email scandal thatís haunting her boss on the campaign trail, as Republicans and federal judges seek information about Clintonís communications while she was running the State Department. The 2016 Democratic front-runner on Monday told a federal judge that Abedin ó long considered her bossís keeper and even dubbed her ďshadowĒ ó had her own email account on Clintonís now infamous home-brewed server, ďwhich was used at times for government business,Ē Clinton acknowledged. Thatís an unusual arrangement, even for top brass at the State Department. Abedin...

    Letís say, just for kicks, you murdered your husband (or wife).

Now they see you driving his car and putting his suits and golf clubs up for sale on eBay. The police find your explanations implausible and contradictory, and then you tell the cops to direct all future questions to your lawyer. The good news is that you have fans.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDPQHKmU0P8 The video includes home footage of her talking about Nixon. In the video are quotes from Jerome Zeifmann, with whom I have spoken in the past on talk radio. She hid documents and made a false statement to a federal judge that there was no precedent for Nixon being able to have counsel. This story must be told by the mainstream. It is very damning.

    <p>Wal-Martís wages are so low that many of its workers must rely on food stamps and other government aid programs, costing taxpayers as much as $900,0000 at just one Wal-Mart Supercenter in Wisconsin.</p> <p>So how did the reportís authors come up with the $900,000 figure? First, they took into account the number of Wal-Mart stores and employees across Wisconsin and the per-person costs of Badgercare, the stateís health care program, estimating that the cost of the publicly funded health care comes to $251,706 per year for a Supercenter that employees 300 workers.</p>

    It's a potent sign of how low the American political bar is set that gratitude is expressed because a US president says he will ask Congress to vote before he starts bombing another country that is not attacking or threatening the US. That the US will not become involved in foreign wars of choice without the consent of the American people through their representatives Congress is a central mandate of the US Constitution. George Bush, of course, sought Congressional approval for the war in Iraq. There is no reason to believe that a Congressional rejection of the war's authorization would...
