    Vice President Joe Biden's aides were worried about "the optics" of his son, Hunter, working for a Ukrainian energy company in 2014, but they refused to raise the issue so as to not risk "a scolding" from the elder Biden, according to a report by The New York Times. The aides "enlisted State Department officials to gather facts to determine how to handle the story" of Hunter Biden's work on the board of Burisma Holdings, to which he was appointed that year, the Times reported Sunday. "Hunter Biden's activities struck many of the officials working on Ukraine policy as an...

    The day has finally arrived when our online media monopolies are blatantly censoring the news that Americans can see. Chrissy Clark writes at The Federalist: Facebook and YouTube are removing all content from their platforms that mentions the anti-Trump whistleblower's name, whom news outlets including RealClearInvestigations have publicly identified as CIA analyst Eric Ciaramella. No law bans media outlets or any person but the intelligence community inspector general from making the whistleblower's name public. A Facebook spokesperson said the platform will remove "any and all mention of the potential whistleblower's name.

    When Russia invaded Ukraine in early 2014, Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. pressed President Barack Obama to take decisive action, and fast, to make Moscow “pay in blood and money” for its aggression. The president, a Biden aide recalled, was having none of it. Mr. Biden worked Mr. Obama during their weekly private lunches, imploring him to increase lethal aid, backing a push to ship FGM-148 Javelin anti-tank missiles to Kiev. The president flatly rejected the idea and dispatched him to the region as an emissary, cautioning him “about not overpromising to the Ukrainian government,” Mr. Biden would later...
  • Child Rape Stories Are Too 'Stupid' for ABC News to Cover

    In case you missed it, a video came out this week that makes it look like ABC News affirmatively protected billionaire alleged pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. This came on top of allegations from journalist Ronan Farrow that NBC News killed his reporting on alleged rapist Harvey Weinstein to protect their own in-house sexual abuser, morning anchor Matt Lauer. In case anyone's still wondering why people don't trust the press, this is a pretty good place to start. Amy Robach, anchor at ABC, was caught on the recording saying that, under pressure from the British royal family, ABC executives killed her story...
  • Will the Miami Herald Step Up and Save Mainstream Journalism?

    As intended, my October 23 article, “Why Did the Miami Herald Abandon Journalism,” caught the attention of the editors of that venerable newspaper. Now that I have their attention, I would like them to address a question that only they have the clout and resources to answer: did the Florida state attorneys know that their star witness in the 2013 trial of George Zimmerman was an imposter? If the editors answer this question, they could win a Pulitzer. Even if they fall short, a good faith effort could help restore the faltering faith of many Americans in mainstream American journalism....

    (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today released new Clinton emails on the Benghazi controversy that had been covered up for years and would have exposed Hillary Clinton’s email account if they had been released when the State Department first uncovered them in 2014. The long withheld email, clearly responsive to Judicial Watch’s lawsuit seeking records concerning “talking points or updates on the Benghazi attack,” contains Clinton’s private email address and a conversation about the YouTube video that sparked the Benghazi talking points scandal ( Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:14-cv-01242)). This Judicial Watch FOIA lawsuit led directly...

    The Hill ^ | 10/18/19 | Jordain Carney
    A years-long internal State Department review of Hillary Clinton's private email server cited 38 people for violations, but found no "persuasive evidence" of classified information being systematically, deliberately mishandled. The State Department report, handed over to Congress this month and released on Friday by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), found that 38 people were responsible for 91 violations. The State Department probe included a review of approximately 33,000 emails. A total of 588 violations were found, but 497 could not be tied to a specific individual. The report does not state what, if any, disciplinary action the individuals will face, or...
  • FRENZY: Nets Devote 7 Hours To Trump-Ukraine, Only 46 Minutes to Hunter Biden Sweetheart Deal

    In just ten days (September 20 through September 30) the broadcast networks overwhelmed their evening and morning shows with more than 7 hours of coverage devoted to a whistleblower’s complaint about President Donald Trump’s phone call with Ukranian president Volodymyr Zelensky and the ensuing calls for impeachment. Only 46 minutes of that coverage referenced Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden’s sweetheart deal with a Ukranian company. Even when networks mentioned Trump’s concern about Hunter benefiting from his father’s status as Vice President, they were quick to dismiss the allegations with the refrain: “no evidence of any wrongdoing.” See montage video below:On the September 23 edition of ABC’s World News Tonight correspondent Jon...

"If these reports are true, then ... It means that he [Trump] used the power and resources of the United States to pressure a sovereign nation—a partner that is still under direct assault from Russia—pushing Ukraine to subvert the rule of law in the express hope of extracting a political favor." — Biden's statement on Friday...

    Officials refused to say the name of the gunman involved in the west Texas shooting out loud during a press conference Sunday. Odessa Police Chief Michael Gerke began the update by noting that the investigation into the shooting that left seven dead and 22 injured is still active and ongoing. “There are still multiple crime scenes that are being worked. There are no definitive answers as to motive or reasons at this point. But we are fairly certain that the subject did act alone,” Gerke, who was accompanied by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said. “You’ll notice that I’m not naming...

John Sununu, the former governor of New Hampshire and White House chief of staff for President George H.W. Bush, reacted Monday to South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, who said he wants "as much as possible" declassified from Inspector General Michael Horowitz's inquiry into alleged misconduct with using the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. "I think they should see it all because frankly there’s nothing there of substance that applies to any real intelligence process. It...

    Jeffrey Epstein, the financier who hanged himself in a federal jail in Manhattan, was supposed to have been checked by guards every 30 minutes, but that procedure was not being followed the night before he was found, a law-enforcement official with knowledge of his detention said. In addition, the jail had transferred his cellmate and allowed Mr. Epstein to be housed alone in a cell just two weeks after he had been taken off suicide watch, a decision that also violated the jail’s normal procedure, two officials said. The disclosures about apparent failures in Mr. Epstein’s detention at the Metropolitan...

    Wichita, KS – A 911 call during a medical emergency at the Trust Women Wichita abortion facility last week revealed how much this facility was willing to put its own interests above a woman who was believed to be having a stroke. An employee of Trust Women, located in Wichita, Kansas, called 911 at 11:00 a.m. on July 31, 2019. Public 911 records obtained by Operation Rescue were heavily redacted but did reveal that a 45-year old woman was having sudden speech and loss of balance. Before the dispatcher could ask details of the woman’s condition, the Trust Women caller...

    California law enforcement and school officials have defended 21 months of secrecy around the murder investigation of a Panorama High School student at the hands of MS-13 — one part of a grisly rampage that has generated national headlines and left at least 10 people dead. They said there was no need to alert teachers, parents and students because other students were never in danger, the gang had little presence on campus, and no acts of gang violence affected the campus itself. But a month before the October 2017 off-campus slaying of Brayan Andino, another incident linked to MS-13 erupted...
