Clinton Scandals: For well over a year now, the progressive left in the Democratic Party have tried hard to sell the idea that, a) Russia meddled in our election, and, b) that it was to the detriment of Hillary Clinton. After nearly a year and a half of investigating, neither appears true. What is true, and now documented, is that Hillary Clinton and her family foundation both benefited handsomely from Russian corruption. Citing federal officials and government documents, The Hill details the Russians´ nuclear-industry corruption here in the U.S., citing extensive evidence that "Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery,
FTA: "It´s strange that an investigation continues into the inconsequential ties between the Donald Trump campaign and Russian officials, while solid evidence of bribery of the Clinton family by the Russians and many others is completely ignored."
Strange? Really? This is par for the course for the Trump hating political class. They will forgive the Old Gal and her rheumy husband anything if they believe they can harm this President. The animus is unbelievable surrounding President Trump. The fear that he will actually drain the swamp is the motivating factor in the Mueller fiasco. The swamp is a bubbling cauldron of corruption and cronyism dedicated to protecting the status quo. They may have met their match in this President. Please God, let it be so.
Sadly, the facts don´t matter to the Democrats & the Leftists. So this will be churning in the alternate media but there will be no righteous indignation from the MSM. Taking bribes via charity is not quite as bad as assaulting young women -so this may quite fizzle. I am still surprised Harvey Weinstein got kicked over. They ignored him for decades. They still ignore what Bill did and the fact that Hillary protected him. As far as selling America ´down the river´ - that IS quite acceptable to the hate-USA crowd.
This is confirmation of Peter Schweizer´s assertions in Clinton Cash I gather. One can assume everything in that book is correct, making the Clintons and their cohorts among the sleaziest, most corrupt, mendacious evil doers this country has ever endured. And yet they are offered high office, honored, and even beloved. By fellow democrats. Incredible.
This is why we need to drain the swamp. And, this is why all the Leftists need to be fired, removed from government. They are at war with the US. They are conspiring, colluding with the Russians! Always have, and apparently always will.
Finally the TRUTH is beginning to emerge!! DemocRATs are good at pointing the finger of blame at others and accusing them of exactly what democRATs do! It´s like riding thru a Detroit ghetto and listening to them say "just look at what Republicans have done!"
Lets see how Sessions gets out of taking on this one. He has been totally useless so far in "draining the swamp" and it appears that he has no interest in prosecuting law breakers from the Obama/Clinton era.
This one will be hard to ignore unless he has been bought and paid for !!!
How does Robert Mueller wind up in charge of investigating a huge Obama-era, Clinton-cash-bribery generated web of crimes in which Mueller himself played a key role in creating, carrying forth, and covering up the underlying crimes themselves?
Our fellow L-Dotters on this thread seem to be getting near the heart of the matter: namely, that the master criminals in the story, the Clintons, the Obamas, Soros, and Dr. Evil for all I know, are protected by law enforcement at the highest level (Mueller, Comey, Lynch, Holder, Rosenstein, McCabe), abetted by a corrupt and feeble Congress, and kept relevant and credible by a fawning corrupt press. This is the nature of the mess. Does anybody know how to clean it up?
# 9 is right on. We have become a Banana Republic and our laws don´t apply to the elites in Washington. Any Congressional hearings will be no different than the Benghazi hearings with the same result. The Republicans will be accused of hating Hillary because she´s a woman by that loathsome Congressman Elijah Cummings. In the end nothing will be concluded other than the Russians now own 20% of uranium and the perps involved, Clintons, Comey & Meuller, will walk away with millions in bribes. The swamp protects it own.
I absolutely Love Lucianne and her network of news. How wonderful it would be to have just one day of news without any mention of the Clintons. That is, until they are frogmarched to a holding cell at Levanworth,KS.
Why are the Clintons not behind bars, when citizens guilty of far less offence fill the jails? Why are their media accomplices and coverup artists not under investigation, while innocent Republicans still are? Deplorables are patient, but Deplorables demand real justice, not DC swamp "justice".
You know #14 I know of only one way to clean it up, April 19, 1775 comes to mind. I´d much prefer to figure out some other way and still have great hope for doing so but that´s all I have at the moment.
How can a single solitary American look at this and remain a "democrat" let alone half of the country.
I have been thinking about the concept of "Nationalism" listening to the "Patriot Game" and think I figured out better perspective than I ever previously have.
Pride in ones nation is a good thing until it reaches the point where it becomes a cult phenomenon where individual thought is subservient to cult loyalty. The pride we have in the USA is pride in a nation that relishes in individual thought. That is a great thing.
The Left pretends to be against nationalism and profess to be global citizens but as with the Russia scandal, its opposite day.
The cult of the left is precisely the kind of group think unbridled nationalism can lead to. It isn´t nationalism that´s bad, it´s cult group think that´s dangerous. That defines the left. Cult first second and third, country a vague afterthought.
The left is everything they proclaim to be against.

From what was reported on Hannity last night, one of the problems is Mueller, McCabe, and Rosenstein were all within the know on this back in the day. So, one has to ask.. how they can now be impartial to any Russian investigation?
Sessions still has to recuse himself, but there has to be someone down the line at Justice that knew about this and has kept quiet for fear of retribution. We don´t need a tinfoil hat to connect all these dots. And it sounds like finally the FBI through releasing these documents, is letting the cat out of the bag. Good work, Peter Sweitzer and The Hill for their dedication to this story!
There is only SO LONG the media can black this issue out--
TRUTH will win out, but the media has set the national agenda for the country and have gotten away with it for a long time--
"You shall know the truth, and the truth will set you free" unless the people don´t care any more, and to challenge based on common sense is a threat to them as they brainwash or make us quit caring out of fear
The Justice Dept. is going to meet today and there is enough pressure out there now that something must be done. The problem is, we have the FBI investigating itself and they wouldn´t dare find themselves guilty or even look into the "matter." We knew that the Clintons and Obama were behind this mess. The Clinton Crime Foundation received 145 million from Russia for the uranium illegally transferred to Russia by our own government. If action is not taken now and these traitorous perverts are not jailed, war is inevitable. America will not stand for this.
Do you think this information coming out now is coincidental or due to stunning reporting? This information is coming out because Hillary won´t GO AWAY and they have decided to put a stake through her heart. Most of BO´s people that are involved will be difficult to pin down because investigators won´t focus there. They will focus on the Clintoons and their foundation.
My bet is that the pressure will intensify until Hillary folds and promises to return to the woods and stay there. There will be tsk tsking by some and a report that no one will read and nothing will be done about will be generated.
Ooooookay …. Noooow I get it. It all falls into place. Comey’s job was to bury this Clinton/Russia FBI investigation and to set up the fabricated Trump/Russia smoke screen to deflect attention away from the Russian graft paid to the Clintons. Now Comey’s actions make sense. And Bill’s meeting with Lynch makes sense as well, to make sure nobody came anywhere close to the Russian payoffs the Clintons received.
Now, ahem, the question is, did any Russian bribe money end up at the McCain Institute? Show me the money trail.
It really takes a special kind of hypocrisy and self-righteousness to accuse others of that which you are guilty yourself. But then, that is a specialty of the left - projection. They have a guilty conscience because of their criminal and degenerate behavior, and justify it to themselves by accusing others. But then, that is the defining characteristic of their role model, who constantly whispers in their ear that their behavior is justified - The Accuser.
When the Republican National Committee, at the behest of President Trump, announced its "fake news" awards, the mainstream media treated it as an attack on freedom of the press. Even if that concern were legitimate (we seem to recall President Obama attacking Fox News pretty regularly without the mainstream press raising alarms), the list is a damning indictment of how sloppy reporters and editors have gotten in their zeal to attack Trump. Here´s are the "winners" as published by the RNC: 1. The New York Times´ Paul Krugman claimed on the day of President Trump´s historic, landslide victory that the economy would never
Environmentalism: A new study published in the prestigious journal Nature finds that all those global warming doomsday scenarios aren´t credible. Not that you would ever know based on how little coverage this study is getting. The study, published on Thursday, finds that if CO2 in the atmosphere doubled, global temperatures would climb at most by 3.4 degrees Celsius. That´s far below what the UN has been saying for decades, namely that temperatures would rise as much as 4.5 degrees, and possibly up to 6 degrees. Basically, the scientists involved in the Nature study found that the planet is less sensitive to changes
Shutdown: Republicans don´t have a great track record with government shutdowns. In the past, no matter whose fault it is, the GOP gets blamed by the opposition Democrats and their allies in the mainstream media for any budget shutdown. This time will be no different. The GOP is once again engaged in a game of chicken with the Democrats over the budget. They have until Friday to either extend their budget deadline, or to solve an impasse over the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, also known as the "Dreamers" bill. If not, Democrats have threatened to shut down the
Health Reform: The number of uninsured shot up by 3.2 million last year. Naturally, Republicans are getting blamed, even though the causes were in place well before President Trump won the election. According to the quarterly Gallup survey, 12.2% of adult Americans were uninsured in Q4 2017. That´s up significantly from the year before, when the uninsured rate was 10.9% — the biggest jump since Gallup started tracking this in 2008. This comes despite a steady decline in unemployment and predictions from the Congressional Budget Office that the number of uninsured would drop by 1 million in 2017. Gallup isn´t the only
Just a few weeks after major tax reform legislation was approved by Congress and signed by President Trump, we are seeing the broad benefits of economic growth for the middle class, blue collar workers and the poor. That is captured in summary fashion in the stock market. The Dow has climbed to a new all-time record, over 26,000 in the past few days. That reflects $7.2 trillion in new wealth added to the economy over the first year of the Trump presidency, broadly shared by everyone with stock ownership, either directly, or through pension plans and retirement savings. Turns out Donald
Overregulation: After a number of false starts, Congress is once again seriously looking at reforming the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. But this time, something´s different: Some Senate Democrats may want to help. It´s an opportunity too good to waste. The New York Times reports that a new push to change the CFPB would be the "first major revision of the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, a signature accomplishment of President Barack Obama that has been deemed ´a disaster´ by President Trump." Whether it counts as an "accomplishment" is certainly open to question, but there´s no doubt the CFPB has been a disaster, especially for
Corporate Responsibility: In his annual letter to corporate CEOs, BlackRock´s Laurence Fink is pushing them to focus not just on profits, but on social responsibility. Given that BlackRock (BLK) manages more than $6 trillion in investments, his views can hold a tremendous amount of sway. Too bad this effort is so badly misguided. In his letter, Fink says that "society is demanding that companies, both public and private, serve a social purpose." As such, he says, "every company must not only deliver financial performance, but also show how it makes a positive contribution to society." He tells CEOs that their corporate strategies
Freeing Iran: In their battle against the oppressive mullahs, Iran´s protesters have one powerful weapon: the internet. Unfortunately, the government knows this and is systematically closing down apps it believes pose a threat, and selectively disrupting internet service. The U.S. should do all it can to keep Iran´s digital window open. The internet has become a formidable weapon in the Iranian people´s fight for freedom. It gives those who oppose Iran´s terror-supporting regime a way to communicate with others, share ideas and even organize opposition. A report out just this Wednesday from the Center for Human Rights in Iran (CHRI) notes that
The public is more upbeat about the direction of the country and the economy, less likely to be looking for a job and less stressed. Yet they´re not giving President Trump much of the credit, the latest IBD/TIPP Poll shows. The January poll finds 35% approve of the job Trump is doing and 58% disapprove — a gap of 23 points, which is unchanged from last month. Trump´s favorability rating is 36%, with 57% saying they have an unfavorable view of the leadership he´s providing — a gap of 21 points. However, the poll also found that 45% now approve of how
Health Care: President Trump has taken three important steps that will help make health care more affordable for millions by injecting more choice and competition into the insurance market. The response from Democrats is illuminating. In a series of proposed regulatory changes, Trump aims to give consumers options that Democrats want to deny them — options for less expensive insurance that best suits their own health care and financial needs. One would remove an Obama-era regulation that was designed to thwart the increasingly popular market for "short-term" insurance plans. These plans didn´t comply with ObamaCare´s myriad rules and regulations, which meant they
If there is one thing about which most economists understand and agree it´s the law of supply and demand. A derivative of that law is that demand and velocity of transactions tend to diminish as costs increase. While few individuals disagree about this, many in the collective body of economists have become so politicized that when it comes to the cost of variables such as taxes and regulations, that consensus all but vanishes. Indeed, to listen to many of the pundits and experts there seems to be confusion, denial and disagreement about how the cost of regulations and taxes actually affect
In the midst of the media feeding frenzy over Michael Wolff´s gossipy and fact-mangling book on the Trump White House, another piece of news broke. On Jan. 5, it was announced that the FBI has returned to investigating The Clinton Foundation. Yawn. First, the media ignored it. Then, they touched on it for half a story, after which pundits insisted that there is "nothing new," as if they have access to the factual evidence being sought by the FBI. Does the "nothing new" response ring a bell? It should. Last year, some reporters stared at the clear evidence of corporate donations to
A review of a classified document outlining what is described as extensive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuse was made available to all House members Thursday and the revelations could lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, several sources with knowledge of the document stated. These sources say the report is “explosive,” stating they would not be surprised if it leads to the end of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation into President Trump and his associates. The House Intelligence Committee passed the motion along party lines Thursday to make the classified report alleging extensive
After leaving office, President Ronald Reagan created the Ronald Reagan Freedom Award to recognize individuals who have fought to spread liberty worldwide. Nancy Reagan continued the tradition after her husband’s death, and in 2008 she bestowed the honor on human rights icon Natan Sharansky, who credited Reagan’s strong defense of freedom for his own survival in Soviet gulags. Reagan recognized that as leader of the free world, his words carried enormous weight, and he used it to inspire the unprecedented spread of democracy around the world. President Donald Trump does not seem to understand that his rhetoric and actions reverberate in
Pope Francis has conferred the title of “Commander of the Pontifical Equestrian Order of St. Gregory the Great” on Lilianne Ploumen, a Dutch politician and vocal agitator for abortion rights. Last year, Ploumen founded a pro-abortion organization called She Decides, which offers funding and support for international NGOs that provide, facilitate or campaign for abortion. In an email to the Catholic Herald, Ms. Ploumen said that she was “very honoured” by the pontifical medal, which was sent via the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs last month. In an interview with Dutch radio, Ploumen said she views the honor as a
Obama’s current office, which is run by former de facto President Valerie Jarrett, is just a mile or so from the White House. It is at that location one sees a daily procession of donors, political operatives, party affiliates (BOTH Democrat and Republican) media friends (of which there are many) and more shadowy figures representing a myriad of foreign interests. And each day this office and its two primary inhabitants – Obama and Jarrett, are asked the same question: WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT TRUMP? Obama being Obama, with his solar-system-sized ego intact, has been promising to do
The House Intel panel’s passage of New York Republican Rep. Peter King’s motion to release the FISA abuse memo to fellow House members has rocked Washington, D.C. (Photo) Lawmakers from Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) to Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) have called for the classified memo’s immediate release. According to Fox News contributor Sara Carter, the contents of the memo are so “explosive,” that it could end special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe once and for all.Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino warned the release of the FISA report will destroy the image of his former boss Barack Obama.“Take it to
California lawmakers are targeting the expected windfall companies in the state would see under the federal tax overhaul with a bill that would require businesses to turn over half to the state. A proposed Assembly Constitutional Amendment by Assemblymen Kevin McCarty, D -Sacramento and Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, would create a tax surcharge on California companies making more than $1 million so that half of their federal tax cut would instead go to programs that benefit low-income and middle class families.
Former FBI director James B. Comey is joining the faculty of his alma mater, the College of William & Mary, and plans to teach a course on ethical leadership at the school’s Washington center starting in the fall. Comey, whom President Trump fired last year, will have a nontenured position as an executive professor in education, the school announced Friday. His course will be offered through the W&M Washington Center to students of the public college based in Williamsburg, Va. Comey will teach the course in fall 2018, spring 2019 and summer 2019 with executive assistant professor Drew Stelljes.
During his town hall tour across Canada, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has given explicit notice to pro-life Canadians that their beliefs on abortion make them second-class citizens. (Snip) According to the article, Trudeau warned that "an organization that has the explicit purpose of restricting women´s rights by removing rights to abortion, the right for women to control their own bodies, is not in line with where we are as a government and quite frankly where we are as a society." According to Trudeau, his tongue-lashing of pro-life groups was prompted by responses to a change to who can receive grants as
Far from content living his golden years on the $400,000 speech and lecture circuit of other former presidents, President Obama has been busy with clawing back for his old power. He´s actually covertly plotting to oust his democratically elected successor, President Trump, vowing to his associates to "rip him a new one," in the 2018 midterm elections. Seems he´s not all that interested in watching his youngest daughter grow up. That´s the word from DCWhispers, which reports that Obama´s Kalorama mansion, in the heart of the capital´s most tony district, is the center of significant comings and goings among the Obamatons,
Microwaves are as damaging to the environment as cars and users must be taught how to cook more efficiently, scientists say. The ovens are responsible for 7.7 million tons of the carbon dioxide pumped out from the EU each year — the equivalent of 6.8 million cars. Researchers say they are fueling global warming with consumers overcooking food to blame. Microwaves account for the largest percentage of sales of all types of oven in the EU, with numbers set to reach 135 million by 2020. But scientists at the University of Manchester — the first to assess the environmental impact
Sara Carter reports on a classified document that was released to all members of the House today. The document seems to be a compilation of information, prepared by House intelligence committee staff, relating to the anti-Trump dossier, the FBI, the warrant to conduct surveillance on members of the Trump campaign, and the use of that warrant. Carter calls the document a bombshell. Her sources say its revelations might lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, and perhaps even the criminal prosecution of some. They also say, less plausibly, that the revelations could lead to
In an exclusive interview with Utah Gov. Gary Herbert, FOX Business was told that Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, will likely receive the backing of mega-donors, not just within Utah, but across the country as he gets ready to announce his candidacy. “He’s given me every indication that he’s running. He’ll have a lot of support from the wealthy people that he knows from when he ran for president. The people on the same list of donors that he had before for 2012, including those from Utah, is a very good place for him to raise money,” Herbert, a
