    LAS VEGAS — President Clinton conceded Sunday that the administration mistakenly obtained the FBI files of more than 300 people, including many top Republicans, in late 1993 as the result of a "completely honest bureaucratic snafu" involving security clearances. His chief of staff, Leon Panetta, told reporters that "obviously a mistake was made" and apologized to the people whose FBI files wound up at the White House. Clinton did not apologize directly, but said "I completely support" what Panetta said about the affair.

    FBI releases 60 year old files on Nancy Pelosi's father. The files detail a two-month investigation into Thomas D'Alesandro Jr., a Maryland politician who served in a long career in Congress and as mayor of Baltimore, Just the News noted in a Feb. 19 report on the FBI files. An FBI agent wrote on page 14 of the files: "There have been allegations that D'Alesandro has associated with the Baltimore criminal element and [redacted] and the son, Franklin Roosevelt D'Alesandro, had been arrested for rape." The allegations may have been rumor, the agent noted. Agents had written that Franklin Roosevelt...

    Break silence, US urged Solons want brains of spy case named THREE senior administration lawmakers urged the United States government yesterday to break its silence on the espionage case of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and immediately identify the brains so they could be charged before Philippine courts. Representatives Antonio Cuenco (Cebu City), Marcelino Libanan (Eastern Samar) and Monico Puentevella (Bacolod) made the call as Malacanang reiterated its fear that the spying scandal could impair the Philippines' relations with the United States. The case involves the alleged theft of secret FBI files dealing with the Philippines, some of which...

    How dare they refuse to protect the queen! You’ve heard by now that the FBI is turning over its notes from the Hillary e-mail interrogation to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Republicans on the committee want to see if Hillary’s answers in the interviews were consistent with what she said under oath when she testified before them earlier this year, and whether there is any basis for a perjury case against her. FBI Director James Comey was very careful in telling the committee that Hillary did not lie “to the FBI.” That doesn’t mean she didn’t lie...

    In 1992 George H. W. Bush’s double cross on his promise of “Read my lips! No new taxes!” combined with the damage done to him by H. Ross Perrot’s third party candidacy, opened the door to the White House for Democrat Bill Clinton, a man devoid of morals or any redeeming qualities. The sexual stuff Bill Clinton turned the Oval Office back into the virtual bordello it had been when Lyndon Johnson was using it as his personal sexual hunting grounds. The most famous episodes in Clintons ongoing degradation of women and our White House involved a 22 year old...

    Death threats, spying and vote-buying accusations are all included in the nearly 1,600 pages of just-released FBI documents into the life of the late Jesse Helms. The WRAL Investigates team filed a Freedom of Information Act request last year to get the files on North Carolina's longest-serving senator. Helms died on July 4, 2008, at 86 after years of declining health. The documents show the former five-term U.S. senator had plenty of enemies and that he thought his own government was one of them...

    Top Secret Sen. Ted Kennedy Files To Be Released Family Given Permission To Review Files First BOSTON (CBS) ― The FBI kept a top secret file on the late Senator Ted Kennedy. There are thousands of pages in it. There could be a lot of material in there that would make tabloid editors salivate.

The FBI is ready to make 3,000 of those pages public, but before they do, the Kennedy family will see them first. The Globe reports that while the...

    Filegate, Consolidated Cases, DISMISSED While this Court seriously entertained the plaintiffs' allegations that their privacy had been violated--and indeed it was, even if not in the sense contemplated by the Privacy Act--after ample opportunity, they have not produced any evidence of the far-reaching conspiracy that sought to use intimate details from FBI files for political assassinations that they alleged. The only thing that they have demonstrated is that this unfortunate episode--about which they do have cause to complain--was exactly what the defendants claimed: a bureaucratic snafu.

    WASHINGTON: A federal judge has thrown out a 13-year-old lawsuit against Hillary Rodham Clinton that involved the White House's handling of FBI background records. The case extends back to the secretary of state's time as first lady and has included a voluminous record of nearly 1,500 legal filings. Clinton was summarily removed as a defendant in a three-page opinion by US District Judge Royce C Lamberth. Attorneys who have pursued the case, sometimes known as "Filegate," had argued it should not be dismissed until Clinton has testified. Lamberth disagreed, saying there is no legal reason that he should "require a...

Now it turns out the Democrats don't know the difference between a million and a trillion. Why not make the "stimulus bill" a kazillion dollars? All Americans who work for a living, or who plan to work for a living sometime in the next century, are about to be stuck with a trillion-dollar bill to fund yet more oppressive government bureaucracies.

    An Office of Personnel Management investigator was snooping around my neighborhood today asking questions about one of our neighbors, who apparently is seeking a high-level position with the U.S. Government. She came to my door, showed her badge and paper work, and I invited her in. After a flurry of questions about my neighbor's personality, jobs, family life, etc., she asked me the following question: "Is there any reason that you would think or make you believe that this person would not be loyal to the Government of the United States of America?" And then it dawned on me.... I...

    Clinton Testimony on FBI Files Blocked Apr 2 11:20 AM US/Eastern WASHINGTON (AP) - A federal judge has rejected an effort to force Hillary Rodham Clinton to testify in a decade-old lawsuit over White House acquisition of FBI background files. The court ruling spares Clinton a politically sensitive deposition at a time when she is fighting to overtake Barack Obama in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination. The lawsuit is over the Clinton White House's acquisition of hundreds of FBI files on Republican appointees to White House jobs in previous administrations. The conservative group Judicial Watch accused the former...

    The alleged leader of the prostitution ring that tripped up Eliot Spitzer is credentialed to represent clients before the Internal Revenue Service, an IRS spokesman confirmed Tuesday. According to prosecutors, Mark "Michael" Brener, 62, had "ultimate decision-making authority" over the Emperor’s Club VIP prostitution service.  They say he recruited "prospective prostitutes," handled the group’s marketing, and settled disputes between prostitutes and their clients. He is also a licensed "enrolled agent" of the IRS, spokesman Rob Marvin confirmed.  That means Brener was allowed to prepare and submit other people's taxes, represent others in tax court and in negotiations with the IRS,...

    Conservative evangelical leader Dr. James Dobson admits that a third-party plan supported by pro-family leaders might unintentionally help elect democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton. The influential pro-family advocate still contends, however, that he would rather vote following his values than compromise and be forced to choose between two pro-choice candidates. “We’re very, very concerned about the implications of a Hillary Clinton presidency, but you know, we have been working … for 35 years, I’ve been trying to defend the unborn child,” Dobson said on Fox’s Hannity & Colmes show Monday. “That’s been my life. That’s been my belief, along with...

    After two hours of deliberation, we voted on a resolution that can be summarized as follows: If neither of the two major political parties nominates an individual who pledges himself or herself to the sanctity of human life, we will join others in voting for a minor-party candidate. Those agreeing with the proposition were invited to stand. The result was almost unanimous. The other issue discussed at length concerned the advisability of creating a third party if Democrats and Republicans do indeed abandon the sanctity of human life and other traditional family values. Though there was some support for the...

    In the spring of 1993, shortly after her husband and political benefactor Bill Clinton took office as the nation's 42nd president, Hillary Clinton delivered the commencement address at the University of Texas. In her speech, Hillary reiterated the theme that has been at the heart of her political vision from the start: "We are at a stage in history in which remolding society is one of the great challenges facing all of us in the West." "Remolding society." This is the terminology of a utopian socialist, one who seeks to remake society according to a narrow and dogmatic ideology that...
